Ralph Macchio, step aside.
Daniel-san: How come you didn’t tell me?
Mr. Miyagi: Tell you what?
Daniel-san: That you knew karate?
Mr. Miyagi: You never ask?
A friend of mine once observed that there must be a huge market for karate schools because every time a strip mall goes up, the first thing to show up is a martial arts storefront. He is very wise, my friend.
But we have found a new way to save money. The industrious Cormac-san has proved to be a prodigy when it comes to napping and preparing for competition – all without any troublesome karate school.
Also, he has been doing triple time as a dog walker, to earn money so he can hire an eager high school student to “wax on, wax off” for him. According to eighties film, that is another good way to learn karate. If you want to go the less awesome Jackie Chan/Jaden Smith route, I guess it’s all about hanging up your jacket over and over again. Sadly, hanging up jackets is a skill that neither William nor Cormac has shown any aptitude for, whatsoever.
You can’t be good at everything. I’m so sure – do you think Will and Jada’s kids can nap like this?
But perhaps we disturb this young pupil. As Mr. Miyagi said, we should “leave boy alone to train.”
Indeed. Let him pursue the mastery of sleep.
